This is the best adhesive I've ever tried. I like it better than the permanent because it's not as sticky but it still holds.
I saw this review so had to put in my 2 cents. I LOVE this adhesive!! I have been a die hard dotto fan, but when I tried this I fell in love with it. The refills drop in and it's amazingly easy to load, it never gets stuck or gummy from adhesive sticking to the applicator. I requires much less pressure to roll and I have not had the problem with a line from the roller edge indenting my pictures.
I LOVE IT and have changed by adhesive to this.
I bought and used this when I ran out of dotto and my entire town did not have refills.
I really liked it at first and actually considered swtiching adhesives.
Then I started seeing these lines on my pictures and thought Ritz and ruined them somehow in the printing process. Several picture later I realized it was the adhesive.
The two edges of the roller where the adhesive touches the paper stick out pretty far compared to the dotto. When you press down to adhere it creates indents in your picture that you can see.
I have since gotten dotto refills and am using up what I bought of this adhesive on anything but pictures.
